  • A Middle Aged Reason For Hope

    Contributed by Joel Pankow on Dec 8, 2005
    based on 25 ratings

    In this Psalm I examine the Psalm writer’s attitude to the future as he faces old age and how he deals with his enemies. This is during Advent and has a little reflective flavor of the season in it.

    December 11, 2005 Psalm 71 What do you think about your future? Maybe you’re one of those people who’s done an overall road map of your life. Maybe in ten years you want to retire, or have your house paid off, or have enough money saved up to buy a car, or get married and have children. more

    In this 1st of three sermons I look at the words of the angels to the shepherds on what to look for at Christmas. The first one is to look for a baby.

    John the Baptist wasn’t sure if Jesus was the one he was to be expecting. Sometimes, our expectations don’t come true either, especially at Christmas.

    Matthew 11:1-11: GREAT EXPECTATIONS, AND RECOGNIZING THE MIRACULOUS “Why do I feel depressed right now, when I’m supposed to feel happy?” “Why do I feel frustrated right now, when I’m supposed to feel joyful?” “This isn’t the way it was supposed to be.
